Personalized Genomics – the Wellness Tree
Modern medicine is now combining genetics with medicine, to better treat the personal blueprint of patients, and nutrition is going the same way. We offer genetic testing that is SPECIFIC for nutrition and lifestyle genes — no “scary” genes here! These gene SNP’s (pronounced “snips”) have been shown in thousands of research papers to be DIRECTLY affected by diet and lifestyle. For example, wouldn’t it be nice to know:
•If you are someone for who doesn’t metabolize B vitamins well and would consequently feel tired?
•If the best exercise for you is weights or cardio?
•How well your liver detoxes?
These might be best described as “housekeeping” genes, directly affecting how well your “house” is doing. If your “house” is not that great at cleaning up toxins, for example, it might be nice to know that, and be able to take steps to help. At home, you might hire a housekeeper, and in your body, you can boost your ability to detox by increasing specific vegetables. But first you have to know that, right?
There are 12 areas our testing focuses on, that have multiple different gene SNP’s per area, to give you an overall idea on what your genetic makeup looks like. These are:
•B Vitamin Metabolism (including MTHFR)
•Phase 1 Detoxification
•Phase 2 Detoxification
PATHWAYFIT® WILL TELL YOU PERSONALIZED INFORMATION
✓ Eating Behavior Traits
✓ Food Reactions
✓ Nutritional Needs
✓ Body and Weight
✓ Metabolic Health Factors
Certain genetic markers are associated with lower blood levels of different vitamins or require more of a certain vitamin for optimal health. Pathway Fit® can help you identify which nutrients you may be deficient in, or need more of in your diet.
Specifically, the PathwayFit® genetic test will tell you personalized information about your nutritional needs:
Pathway Fit® provides information about whether you may respond better to endurance training or strength training. Knowing this can help you focus on the types of exercise where you may see more positive results.
Specifically, the PathwayFit® genetic test will tell you personalized information about your exercise-related factors:
Body & Weight
Pathway Fit® provides information about your propensity to being obese, the likelihood of regaining weight after weight loss, how fast your metabolism may work, as well as insight into how efficiently you may lose fat when you start a weight loss program.
Specifically, the PathwayFit® genetic test will tell you personalized information about these body- and weight-related factors:
These results may help you and your physician gain insight into your metabolic health forecast. The results may motivate behavioral changes if you do not currently have optimal diet and lifestyle factors in place.
Specifically, the PathwayFit® genetic test will tell you personalized information about your metabolic health-related factors:
Pathway Fit® analyzes genetic markers associated with how your body responds to various macronutrients. Each patient is provided with a matching diet type based on the genetic test results. The matching diet types are: low fat, low carbohydrate, Mediterranean, and balanced. You also have the choice of ordering one meal plan type: Standard, Gluten-Free, Pregnancy & Lactation, Dairy-Free, and Vegetarian. Pathway Genomics’ team of registered dietitians are available to discuss each diet plan and determine the best caloric intake for you.
Specifically, the PathwayFit® genetic test will tell you personalized information about these diet-related factors:
Knowing that your eating behavior traits may be influenced by genetics can be powerful in helping you set specific, realistic, time-managed health- and wellness-related goals.
Specifically, the PathwayFit® genetic test will tell you personalized information about your eating behavior-related traits:
Pathway Fit® may help you identify why you react to certain foods and substances in different ways, as well as some factors that can influence your food preferences.
Specifically, the PathwayFit® genetic test will tell you personalized information about these food reactions:
